nice episode, but the "fusion" was the one that surprised me :3 I'm I'm loving the fact that the docked form looked more matured and hotter (thumbs up with this fanservice XD )

comparing the production sequence with SAO makes me think that this one has greater budget, explaining the "vivid" graphics and CG :3

Ayane: Aoi chan, gattai da!
Aoi: hai!
*screams fu.........sion!*
Ayane+Aoi: - kyoudai gattai! gurren!.... oops sorry, operation! vivid blue! XD

Oh yeah as I thought that Homura clone is from the dark side, but hey, It could be that she came from the past to save the present Ayane from the curse of becoming a hightech witch... anyone? :P

with just two episodes I've already started enjoying this show, something I didn't find on the first 4 episodes of SW S1 :3 hopefully it'll get even better than SW once it hits the climax, hopefully Takamura (SW director) will surpass himself in this one

now looking forward to vivid-black, vividpurple, and vivid-red form :3

EDIT: now the question is how many animes did VO referred to and what are those?
- Strikw witches - DAT pantsu and strong yuri O.o
- madoka magica - DAT homura clone
- rinne no lagrange - DAT floating island
- gundam 00 - the use of non nuclear source of power
- Infinite Stratos - the high tech suit :3
- Gurren Lagann - Gattai da! gattai! :3
- precure - oh well cute magical girls ;)
- Gundam SEED destiny - Ayane's boomerang reminds me of sword impulse's boomerang
- and it's close to referencing Horizon's technohexens Malga and gacchan, they freaking need some cool broomsticks!

and now what's next?

So much innuendo and yuri symbolism in one show. I can't wait to see another Docking and Yuri harem.
Loved that "are we in a dream right now" scene.

Arcriatrix, you are forgetting all the shows like Power Rangers, Voltron, et al where they have to dock up to reach their full potential or even more than the sum of their parts. Where they need to forum the Blazing Sword or 200% powered up Naked Impact hammer to defeat their enemy.

Kuroki / Homura who is Alone powering it up with her arrow was a unique twist. Not sure I've quite seen that before. Having to Dock to defeat Alone is so obvious it is funny but that's what makes this show, you know the exaggerated ridiculous transformation is coming but you love it anyways.

I must say I have had some difficulties these two episodes, I think this show is too cheesy and happy go lucky for me.
But gonna try and see if I can survive past ep 4, or if I have to surrender. (ノ_ _)ノ

That was the naval JSF, not F22 :p though I guess it's still the same outcome XD

"I hate tomatoes" ...................... SAY WHAT, i was literally shaking my head in disbelief. On the plus the art and animation is very well done imo which is keeping me entertained.

Yeah that scene definitely deserves a facepalm. Another stupid dialogue i remember from this ep was at the beginning where it essentially was
"I don't know if I can do it"
"oh but you can"
"oh ok"

Yuri buildup, yuri buildup, yuri buildup..."I hate tomatoes". Now THAT'S how you troll, 10/10 would bash my head on the keyboard again.

I think I can actually hear the distinct shrieks of my braincells as they fall to their deaths out of my ear. And that's coming from someone who liked Upotte.

Anyway, I'm still in on this, the girls are gay enough for me to bear with it. 3/5.

Ah those transformation scenes, that 'docking' and those exhaust breasts. It's a barrage of fan-service. Normally I don't have a problem with this but the directors of Strike Witches just seem to focus too much on getting close-ups of panties that it interrupts my enjoyment of other parts of the show.

I guess this is to be expected from them but it seems like they took it one step further in Vividred. Aoi's docking transformation was pretty cool, she looked more mature. Not sure why Akane was absorbed to become part of the Blue, shouldn't it be the other way round?

Disappointed in the enemies so far, they're too similar to the Neuroi, right down their regenerative powers.

Well played. NAKED Operation lets go!

Lmfao at that random "oh my god" when Aoi knocked that laser beam into the next world. And I /facepalmed at that tomato thing -.- lol.

Was wondering what the hell 'docking' was the whole episode and now that I know what it is, oh yeah I wanna see more of this. That merging made them into an even cuter looking girl and I love that armor design-and its not just because their chests turns into boosters and the panties are completely exposed haha.

The fighting animation was really nice too.

The show draws obvious comparisons to Strike Witches, and its too soon to really say, but I also feel some elements from a few other shows where 'girls' with powers 'save the day'. The one girl standing on the tower who re energizes the Alone bot, gave me a very Jinki: Extend flashback, for some odd reason.

So there are elements of this show that remind me of:

Strike Witches (Sky girls to a lesser extent), Jinki: Extend, and the transformations remind me a little of Symphogear. I'm sure there are other shows that have similarities.

Everything about this show screams ridiculous.
Tomato? Ridiculous.
Talking while everyone dies? Ridiculous.
Dockingu with kissing as a requirement? Ridiculous.
No pants? Ridiculous.
"What happened to the school?" *Camera zooms out to huge trench* Ridiculous.

This is Gurren Lagaan + Power Rangers + a million other parodies. Yeah, maybe it could pull drama out of nowhere and we'd never suspect a thing, but until then this is just a ridiculous anime and I love it.

The fact that the animation is excellent helps too.

"your the only one who can fight the Alone Aoi!"
*Aoi creates another key*
"you two are the only ones who can fight the Alone!"

also lol at the tomatoes thing, her fears far beat my expectations. at least in the end they were able to fuse!

gotta love comedy shows

Did the school system in Japan find skirts outdated and thought it appropriate for girls in their junior high years to strut around wearing shirts up to their waist and bloomers covering their panties? Is this a new form of fan service?

The animation is way too good for this anime.
The character design of them fused was awesome. Liked the two toned blue hair.

Homura-clone is a bad guy?

Are they "Alone" because they have no friends?

Is it just the subs I'm watching, or is there really that much sexual innuendo in their "operations"?

.. guess I'll have to keep watching to find out!

Still a fairly average and rather generic anime so far, on the bright side this episode was an improvement over episode 1 :)

Aoi got hit by a jet! She's just up there flying in the sky talking to Akane... then BAM! Hit by a jet! I love the comedy in this anime.

All that Eva-level destruction from that Alone... awesome!

If anyone is wondering, Vividblue transformation is uncensored on the BD.

I don't know why but I can't stop watching this... even though it's just another loli + semi-mech nonsense

some thing about it reminds me of my childhood, and it just felt right...

Evil Homura will stay my favorite character in this anime! I loved her from the very first second when I've seen her badass-ness.

Oh god, I completely misunderstood the part where the grandpa was explaining why they couldn't dock, and thought he was saying that it is necessary for one of them to reject the dock in order for it to work...that would make things quite interesting; yuri-rape fusion

Better than the first episode. Really liking the yuri docking. :D Too bad it was not a kiss on the lips. Lol at Akane going for Aoi's lips. Curious as to the identity of that arrow girl.

Not liking the fanservice a bit.

The action scenes of Strike Witches, the mahou shoujo elements of Cardcaptor Sakura, the fusions of Dragonball Z and the friendship of Yugioh? Can this show do any wrong? The Dockingu did not disappoint

>Not knowing that little girls are far superior to the military
>The future

Once I heard both of their voices while they were in the Vividblue form, I thought of Goku and Vegeta posing, saying "Fuuu... sion! Ha!," and then speaking together as Gogeta.

And yes, I admit I love the docking.

Well, this isn't the worst anime out there... I'm not sure I can call myself a fan yet, but I can definitely see the influences of one of my favorite anime on this - Nanoha.

Lets be honest, though. It might be more "techie" but that hammer ain't got shit on Graf Eisen, and these girls ain't got shit on Vita, even fused. I reckon Vita would tear them to pieces 2 on 1.

Ehhh, I can enjoy a good Mahou Shoujo anime, but I'm not so sure I'm digging this one's vibe. It's not the worst, but a 9 or 10 is a bit much for me, at this early stage, lol...

Actually... since you went and said it... and I know I'm not the first to call you out on this, but Tomato's are a fruit. It's a misconception here in America, calling them a vegetable. They're most definitely not a vegetable, Tomato's have always been classified as a fruit due to their makeup being ...well, like most other fruits that exist.
